This is Murphy - 7 weeks old and the cutest little boy ever. Our last little dog died a month before our retirement move and although we've often talked about another dog in the three years since then talking was as far as we got. I do believe things happen when the time right and this small puppy needing a home seems meant for us.

Earlier in the week we had a visit from Son 2 and his family which was lovely and on Thursday a trip through to the optician, long overdue. I've needed new glasses for quite a while and am looking forward to reading and blogging without suffering headaches caused by eyestrain.
Reading this week has been wonderful and I hope it's an indication of how it will continue through 2012. I've been loving every word of Thomas Hardy's Far From the Madding Crowd and nearing the end with regret although I plan to reread parts this week as I sort out my next post for A Classics Challenge. Really enjoying reading everyone's posts - lots of fun and lots of new blogs being fed into Google Reader. Also read and will be posting on -
Sister by Rosamund Lupton
Alexander's Bridge by Willa Cather
Today I've started The Five Red Herrings by Dorothy Sayers and then I have Stephen King's 11/22/63 waiting ......and on Tuesday the year-long group read of Clarissa by Samuel Richardson begins . Hopefully another great week of reading!
